The course starts by outlining the most important factors that need to be considered when preparing for a project, giving you a powerful checklist for your future project planning. You will then learn about the various phases of the project life cycle and of the system development life cycle. This will include overviews of the analysis, planning, design and evaluation phases. By the end of this section, you will have a strong understanding of the structure and flow of any project you will manage in future.

Next, the course gets into important details, taking a close look at project management methodology and basic tools. This will involve an explanation of the most important types of project management documentation such as program, system, technical, paper-based, electronic, and specialist user documentation.

By being guided through the essential structures, processes, and tools project managers use, any future project management training you take will feel manageable and familiar.
